A day after picking up an incredibly large commit in football, our basketball team picked up an equally important commitment today in the form of 6'8" PF Quintrell Thomas. Thomas picked the Jayhawks over Rutgers, UNLV and Maryland. Sure, Quintrell isn't nearly the highly-touted prospect that Kansas is used to getting, but athletes are always good.
Our front court is going to be barren next season, with the loss of Sasha Kaun, Darnell Jackson and most likely Darrell Arthur, we are going to need all of the bodies we can get. Thomas likely won't be a major impact next season, but he reminds me a lot of Darnell Jackson. Never good enough to start, but a vitally important piece of the time to come in off the bench and contribute solid minutes and rebounds.
Welcome Quintrell Thomas, and we still have another 4-5 commitments available for this class, so plenty of work is yet to be done.
